Can anyone verify this recollection
Hi All. Bought an '82 300D(T) in late January w/ 140K. Sweet car - though a few quirks after sitting for a year. Just had all the fluids and filters changed (didn't have time to putz with it this week and I want to drive the car!!). This morning was spent replacing the hood pad and tomorrow I hope to tackle the "dreaded" vacuum system (already downloaded a bunch-o-tech-stuff and ran some checks, so I know what door actuators and/or lines are problematic and now have spare parts on-hand).

I've spent a few hours going over various topics on this forum and I have to say that I really appreciate the straight-forward "family style" of the crowd here.

Here's the recollection I'd like corroborated: During the couple months I spent educating myself and shopping for a solid diesel Benz, I ran across a statement (don't recall where) that MBZ will provide minor road service (a bit of fuel - jump - etc) to Benz owners (regardless of the ownership history). Is this true or another urban legend?

Thanks for all you folks do to keep these incredible 123s & 124s on the road. I have little doubt this car will be the first among a cluster magnetized to this ole engineer.

For starters congrats on your purchase.

If your MB came with the owners manual then
somewhere in there it says clearly that it is
NOT an urban myth.

Good luck with your MB.

This recollection is true. In the owners guide they refer to a number 1-800-for mercedes which you can call for roadside assistance. Of course, this service is not free.

Some MBZ's still have the roadside assistance decal on the inside of the glovebox, mine does, and out of curiousity I called the number and sure enough it works! :D
